Hi all,

HMD have got a new head of marketing, Stephen Taylor:

It's a while since we had an AMA with anyone from HMD, the last one was with Wesley Lee the senior director of experience. So how about an AMA with Mr Taylor? Or perhaps for a change he can ask us anything! This way he gets to choose the questions, which would be a good opportunity for him to learn more about what we in the community forum are hoping for, which would be of interest to a marketing lead, wouldn't it? 😉

Note it's odd that this news apparently comes from a press release but that press release isn't on the HMD website.

Cheers 🙂

    @madbilly it's a one week old news😃😃. By the way let's see how Stephen now starts marketing for Nokia phones.

    Hi @San.Phu,

    Yes it's one week old but who else on the forum posted about it? Nobody, so I did.

    Yes let's see what changes, I hope we go back to the 2017 style campaigns, they were much better than what we see at the moment.

    Cheers 🙂

    Duck! I literally clicked this topic title with the feeling that the new CMO announced an AMA.

    I'm disappointed. Hate u billy boi 👊

    I thought thought maybe Mr. Stephen is different since he isn't of the same blood (ex-Nokia) as most of HMD's employees today?

    BTW, he, having a good successful career won't settle for less. Neither will he settle with a company which is not doing so well since that can affect his career. So, does HMD have more health than we think? Or... It's all about money and trying to build a name as "turnaround specialist"? 😃

    Hi @singhnsk,

    Or maybe HMD only recruit people who think the same way, like the borg? No point in having diversity of thought with beige Android 😉

    Now Mr Taylor, repeat after me.

    Pure.

    Secure.

    Up to date.

    It just keeps getting better.

    And again please.

    And again.

    Hahaha! That's like a pledge. But is a marketing manager really needed it that's all they are gonna do?

    As I said elsewhere, I hope hmd will take inputs from marketing to make products which consumers want, and not the other way i.e. make products which people don't want and using the marketing to somehow make them buy them.

    Hi @singhnsk,

    Maybe that's why @pekka rantala left? No need for a leader, only a manager to make sure the marketing button-pushers do what's needed. Still, it will be interesting to see if this new CMO brings a new creative direction with marketing.

    Or maybe we will see more of the same, "nothing you don't want and everything you need" I think I heard Florian Seiche say...

    But, Florian, I don't want the Google search bar stuck at the bottom of my home screen, all those different Google Play apps and an account for each of the different Google services which I never even signed up for and definitely don't want people to contact me on (I'm looking at you, Hangouts).

    Oh, Florian says "Repeat after me: It just keeps getting better. It just..." 🤖

    Cheers 🙂
